|A Video Guide To Floor Soundproofing|
When it comes to soundproofing your floor for noise, it is important to establish what you are trying to achieve . Are you trying to stop noise from below reaching you, or are you trying to eradicate your impact noise passing down to your neighbours ?
In practice, most people are aiming at stopping the sounds from below traveling upwards. Many products on the market boast great soundproofing credentials (particularly rubber mat or underlay solutions) but the figures quoted are almost always referring to a reduction in impact sound and are of very little use in identifying how much airborne sound is being reduced.
What's best for you?
Decide if you want to soundproof under your floor boards or above them (or both).
Your decision on how you attempt to soundproof your floor will be driven by two factors. Firstly on how much hassle you want to go to in terms of lifting floorboards and secondly on how much floor height gain you can afford. When soundproofing a floor think about this as our floor soundproofing solutions broadly fall into two categories below the floor access and above the floor access.
